First you need to find your meter. If you can't find it, click here on some suggestions about where it may be.

The Flume product is compatible with about 95% of water meters in the United States today. However, you should check to see if your meter is compatible before you purchase a Flume device.

If you are looking to purchase a meter that is compatible with Flume we recommend the Neptune T-10 and Badger meters (anything but the Badger E-series which is a square-shaped meter).

You can easily check to see if your meter is compatible with Flume. Simply visit and click on the chat icon in the lower right-hand corner of the page. It looks like this:

When the chat window opens, scroll down a bit and you will see a section that looks like this:

From here, you can either upload a picture of your meter or you can enter the brand, size, and model of the meter. Either way, we will quickly tell you whether your meter is compatible or not.*
